What are the goals of each project?
The goals for each project are to develop technology solutions in the selected area of research, make the technology solutions available to the health information technology market, and make research results available through publication. Each project’s research focus and outcomes will include both near-term results and longer term results. The near-term results (those that can be addressed in two years) will be developed to meet the specific needs of the healthcare community to achieve meaningful use. The longer-term results (those that require longer than two years) will be contributions to methods and fundamental knowledge that can be leveraged over time for continuous improvement in health care.
